Nottingham Forest line up England wonderkid transfer as they prepare to go back in for 17-year-old EFL winger

TEENAGER Tom Watson is back on the radar of Nottingham Forest.

Sunderland’s 17-year-old winger was a Steve Cooper target before he signed an extended contract on Wearside earlier this month.

But the Premier League outfit are still hot on England youth cap Watson’s trail — and may even try their luck  in January.

Forest rated Watson at £300,000 in the last window but know his value has gone up with his new contract.

The youngster has made just one senior appearance when he came off the bench for the Black Cats last season against Huddersfield Town.

But he has impressed at youth level scoring 13 times in 34 appearances doe Sunderland’s U18 squad.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Ethan Horvath is fuming at being left out of Cooper’s Premier League squad — and denied any chance of a loan move.

Forest’s USA international, 28, helped Luton win promotion in May but now appears unlikely to play any football until at least January.

It comes after the Tricky Trees have already seen two big name shot-stoppers come through the doors at the City Ground this summer.

Matt Turner arrived from Arsenal on a permanent deal after struggling for game time in North London behind Aaron Ramsdale.

Horvath who joined Forest from Club Brugge back in 2021 has made just 11 appearances for the club since his arrival.
